Software which works on Windows 10 machine to program XC9500XL CPLD?

As part of my project,I used Xilinx ISE design suite 10.1 to compile and create programming file for XC95144XL-10TQG100I.
I  programmed the device using the same tool and the process was successful ,so I shipped board to client. Now I need to make a small change in the code.I had compiled and generated the new programming file using ISE 10.1 tool. But the board is at client site, and they dont have Windows Vista or XP PC.
I wanted to check with you whether we can use ISE14.7 or any version of that software which works on Windows 10 machine, can be used to program XC9500XL CPLD?
 
At client site they downloaded ISE 14.7 design suite and tried programming. But they got an error saying device is not supported. Do we have to install any add-on software to support programming of XC9500XL?

Hi nikhila@1995 ,

ISE 14.7 supports XC9500 series. Please check the below link:

You told xilinx 14.7 support the CPLD device XC95144XL-TQG144I.

But when I created new project in Xilinx ISE 14.7 ,its only showing the device Spartan 6.Why?

ISE Design Suite for Windows 10 supports Spartan®-6 only.

Re: Software which works on Windows 10 machine to program XC9500XL CPLD?

there are two versions of ISE 14.7

one for windows 10, only supports spartan 6 as you say
the other, for wndows 7, supports other parts, but DOES NOT RUN ON WINDOWS 10

You need a machine with windows 7 or a supported linux,

Re: Software which works on Windows 10 machine to program XC9500XL CPLD?

If it's just for programming the device, I'm pretty sure that even Vivado Lab Solutions will talk to an XC9500 (it'll definitely talk to a Spartan 2). We've also used ISE 14.7 Lab Tools on Windows 10 and that works fine (so far...).

 

Writing code for the XC9500 is tricky on Windows 10 (you essentially have to use a virtual machine) - but just loading a bitstream onto it should not be difficult.
